Former Liverpool and Manchester United striker Michael Owen has predicted on Betvictor.com that Tottenham Hotspur will win against Apoel Nicosia this week.

Tottenham will take on Apoel Nicosia away from home at the Pancyprian Gymnastic Association Stadium in Champions League Group H on Tuesday evening.

Spurs will head into the match on the back of a 3-2 victory over West Ham United away from home at the London Stadium in the Premier League.

Former Newcastle United striker Owen has backed Mauricio Pochettino’s side to pick up all three points from the encounter.

Fans react during the Premier League match between West Ham United and Tottenham Hotspur at London Stadium on September 23, 2017 in London, England.

Owen wrote on Betvictor.com: “It’s easy in hindsight but I still don’t know how Harry Kane was as big as 3/1 to net the opener at West Ham on Saturday; I just hope column readers took BetVictor to the cleaners accordingly!

“Whether he or new signing Fernando Llorente starts up front in Cyprus, I don’t see much difference to the final score and expect Mauricio Pochettino’s side to grind out a result on Tuesday.”

A footnote added: “Michael’s recommendation: Spurs HT/FT at 4/5.”

Tottenham kicked off their 2017-18 Champions League campaign with a 3-1 victory over Borussia Dortmund at the Wembley Stadium in London.

Spurs have a much better team than Apoel, and the North London outfit should be able to pick up all three points at the GSP Stadium.

The North London club, though, will be without midfielder Dele Alli and defender Jan Vertonghen, both of whom are suspended.
